Editorial Reviews

The Three Stooges return with the next 24 digtially remastered shorts covering the years 1949-1951 in this sixth collection, which continues with Shemp as the third Stooge, who had stepped in two years earlier to fill the shoes left empty when Curly became ill and retired. This collection contains such classics as MERRY MAVERICKS (1951), a reworking of PHONY EXPRESS (1943) featuring Red Morgan and his gang of bandits; SELF MADE MAIDS (1950), in which the Stooges not only play themselves but assume the roles of their fiances, their fiances father (played by Moe) and their three babies; and DON'T THROW THAT KNIFE (1951), which features Larry, Moe and Shemp in brilliant improvisation with nothing but household items while confined to a single room. The Three Stooges Collection Volume 6 showcases Larry, Moe and Shemp at their best - and things just keep getting better!

These shorts are from the era when the Stooges were comprised of Larry, Moe, and Shemp. These are the probably the last of the great Stooges shorts. With television encroaching upon the motion picture industry, cost cutting measures were soon underway. One such measure taken at Columbia that had already impacted MGM and other studios was the decrease in scope of the short-subject department in 1952. Stooge short veterans producer Hugh McCollum and director Edward Bernds were casualties of this action, and this left only Jules White behind as a person in the short subject department with a feel for what made the Stooges special. Shooting schedules were shortened, old Stooge shorts were cut up and recycled into sparse new material, and fans were not fooled by all of this.

Do be aware that the first six volumes of the Three Stooges will be available in June on The Three Stooges Collection, Volumes 1-6 Bundle. This really is not a great buy, but is pretty much on par with what you pay for all six volumes when they are on sale. This might be the way to go if you don't have any of the volumes yet.

Sony has been doing The Three Stooges proud in its continuing series of restored and remastered DVD editions. Volume 6 is highly recommended for comedy fans and a must for Stoogeheads. Many of the 1949-51 films benefit from witty scripts and direction, and are exceptionally funny.

The best shorts here were produced by Hugh McCollum and directed by Edward Bernds, who soft-pedaled the gratuitous roughhouse and allowed Shemp, Larry, and Moe to improvise freely. This brings new freshness to the standard slapstick format, and shows how professional and resourceful Howard, Fine, and Howard were. (You'll see many amusing instances when a scene is supposed to be over, but Bernds keeps the camera rolling to see what the Stooges will do.) The films also benefit from Columbia's resident stock company of the late 1940s: the lovely Christine McIntyre and Jean Willes, both equally adept at playing sincere heroines and crafty schemers; the suave Kenneth MacDonald, a definitive villain; the versatile Emil Sitka, appearing here in any number of guises; veteran comic Vernon Dent, playing the Stooges' foil with his usual authority; expressive comedian Dudley Dickerson ("This house has sho' goan crazy!"), and the superlative stuntman Jock Mahoney. It isn't easy to steal an entire film from the Stooges, but watch Mahoney in the clever PUNCHY COWPUNCHERS; you'll roar as he indulges in some athletic and hilariously clumsy slapstick.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This volume contains some of my favorite Stooges shorts, especially: The Ghost Talks (with the voice of Phil Arnold as Peeping Tom), Malice in the Palace (with the Emir of Schmo), and Three Arabian Nuts (with the Genius of the Lamp). However, I don't agree that this is the best of the Shemp volumes. For me, that title easily goes to Volume 5, with the hilarity of Brideless Groom, Sing a Song of Six Pants, Squareheads of the Round Table, Fiddler's Three, Shivering Sherlocks, and A Crime on Their Hands. These six shorts are EASILY among the best the Stooges ever made. Curly was beloved and was a comedic genius in his own right; however, the more I watch the Shemp shorts, the more I'm thinking that the best combination of Stooges might have been Moe, Larry, and Shemp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prime Shemp Comedies! April 9, 2009
Anyone who thinks Shemp was not a fine comedian in his own right is probably basing this on the weaker Shemp comedies of 1954 & 1955 (Cuckoo On A Choo Choo). And if they were not weak new stories, they were re-issuing an old short with a few minutes of new footage.

But this set will contain Shemps best work. The writers as well as the Stooges were ready to keep the series going with Shemp's different comic abilities. What really makes these work is that Shemp did not try to be Curly (like some of the other third stooge replacements), Shemp was allowed to be himself. And he added a new set of signature routines. How many of us would do a fake snore with the "Bee Bee Bee Bee" sound at the end. That was a Shemp thing, not Curly.

And since Shemp was the original third Stooge in the Ted Healy days, we are really looking at the original Three Stooges act!

I do find it interesting watching these in original release order, it is obvious that Columbia put some on the shelf while releasing others. For example: 1950's DOPEY DICKS & LOVE AT FIRST BIGHT clearly have title styles pre-dating 1949's VAGABOND LOAFERS as well as having 1949 copyright notices. They were obviously held back while VAGABOND LOAFERS, DUNKED IN THE DEEP, PUNCHY COWPUNCHERS & HUGS AND MUGS got released.

Holding back releases was not unusual and it got more common in the later 1950's. Consider that Shemp died in 1955, but his shorts continued to be released in 1956 (not counting the shorts that Joe Palma impersonated Shemp in long shots).
